Employees can clock out using reason codes such as Dentist or Smoking Break
The GMB union accused a council of threatening staff with a ‘lock-out’ if they did not sign a new contract containing changes including pay, sick pay, and car allowances. The GMB added that thousands of council workers face losing their jobs unless they accept the contracts. Labour-run Rhondda Cynon Taff (RCT) council, which has the second highest population in Wales, expressed disappointment at the GMB reaction. RCT stressed it was reviewing staff contracts because of cuts, and hoped to avoid compulsory redundancies.
Tensor is the number one for staff clocking and payroll with our smart card Time and Attendance systems. These include WinTA Start which holds up to 50 employees’ details, including a photograph of each employee. Using the software a summary of clocking details can be viewed at-a-glance, showing individuals or groups of employees. An Exception view quickly identifies areas where the normal working pattern has not been followed. Up to nine reason codes can also be stored in the clocking station. These allow clocking out for configurable reasons such as Dentist, Business or Smoking Break.
